New revised Bible was released this week in Japan,

Hebrews 10;25 becomes a popular topic of conversation among PIMO.

 

"Do not follow the people who are inactive at attending meetings."

------------------------------

This is the verse in English " not forsaking our meeting together,+ as some have the custom, but encouraging one another,+ and all the more so as you see the day drawing near."

I ran the Japanese version through google translate and it came up with this "Do not neglect to gather with friends +. Let's not follow people who are often absent, and always encourage each other +. Because the day that has been decided is approaching *, let's do more and more such things "

ヘブライ10:24~25

テーマ:
ブログ
 
集会を休みがちになると、撲羊で必ず開かれる聖句の1つに、ヘブライ10:24,25があります。皆さまも嫌というほど聞かされてきた聖句の1つでしょう。
 
 
さて、この聖句、新しい改訂版ではどうなっているでしょうか?
 
 
●(2019年発行:新世界訳聖書改訂版より引用)
=================================
24 また,互いのことをよく考えて,愛を表し立派な行いをするよう勧め合いましょう。 25 仲間と集まることを怠ってはなりません。よく欠席する人たちに倣わないようにし,いつも励まし合いましょう。定められた日が近づいているのですから,ますますこうしたことを行っていきましょう。
=================================
 
 
比較するように一般的に使用されている聖書からも抜き出してみましょう。
 
=================================
24 また、互いに勧め合って、愛と善行を促すように注意し合おうではありませんか。
25 ある人々のように、いっしょに集まることをやめたりしないで、かえって励まし合い、かの日が近づいているのを見て、ますますそうしようではありませんか。
=================================
 
 
ま、新改訳もほぼほぼ我々が使っていた従来の新世界訳と同じような感じですね。
 
 
改定されたことによる違和感。それは何でしょうか?
『どこにスポットを当てているのか』がポイントでしょうか。ここの聖句の適用はあくまでも「集まり合うことをやめないようにしましょう/互いに励まし合いましょう」というものだと思いますし、実際我々もそのように理解してきました。
 
 
ところが、改訂版聖書だと(結局内容は同じなんでしょうけど、私を含め素人視点で読んでみると)、ここの聖句の要点が「欠席するような人間とは関わるな」というものに変換されてしまった気がします。『集まることをやめたりせず』という言い方で十分にその趣旨が理解できていました。今回の倒恥態の目的が“より一層趣旨を明確にするものだ“と言うのであれば、それは違うんじゃないですか?!「集会に欠席するんじゃねーぞ!そんな奴等はふさわしくない人間とみなす」という、普段のアンタ達の身勝手な主張を聖書を利用してメッセージを発信してるだけなんじゃないですか?!
 
 
こうゆう部分が今回の改訂版が『改悪版』とか『改竄版』などと揶揄される理由の一つではないでしょうかね。
 
 
ま、それにしてもエホバ教のやり方は、ある意味でハッキリしていますね。『人に罪悪感を抱かせる』『自己嫌悪に陥らせてから手を差し伸べる(フリをする)』。これ、常套手段です。
 
少し前の塔でも、「神やイエスを愛してるなら集会に来るはずだ」「集会に来る人は謙遜な人である」といったことを平然と言ってのけてしまうのだからビックリです。それを見た時に、行きたくても行けない人や、参加できないことに引け目を感じている人はどのように感じるのでしょう?『打ちのめされる』に違いありません。
 
 
では、神様は『人を打ちのめす』方なのでしょうか?
残念ながらここの青い神様はそういう方であることを証明していますし、もし、本当に神様がいるのであれば、これほどの神様への冒涜はないことでしょう。
 
 
みなさんはこのヘブライの聖句の新しい訳し方についてどう思われますか?またご自由な視点で大いに結構ですので、コメント欄にでも書き込んでみてください。

Why did you run Japanese through google translation? You know you would get a very different English SENSE than what they are actually reading, right? What the Japan Bible says is the same as our English Bible says. You fudge it by running it through the translator. Wow! Needed something did you. I like hearing you on most things, but you are reaching now. I'm blind and can see this clearly. Try something else. Don't waste your time here.

Very scholarly approach (NOT).

Actually, look what google translate does to the greek: "with their forsaken self-assertion, for the sake of the Lord, but not for the sake of doing so, and this is what you see in the day."

I think I prefer "Do not follow the people who are inactive at attending meetings." actually.  😊

They have no shame. They are literally rewriting the bible to make it say what they want.

That's it, they are simply dictating what they want you to hear or do and not what Jehovah has written through his inspired writers.

Lot of "sake" in there, I see 😊

    • Absolutely agree. But what I see as it is possible to read in WT Society text about Higher education is this: They tend to separate young minds from "secular knowledge" because of some fears. Perhaps one of fear is not main reason, to be learned about non-Bible ideas. But as main reason i see how this "secular ideas" can cause that young JW members begin to question WT and Bible.  Please have in mind what you already said, JHVH not decided to separate Congregation, but He doing just opposite. He let all sort of influence to be spread on  people, all people, not just JW's. If JHVH not made separation in literal way, than WT try to do this separation in limited level on limited class of people for limited time in their life - looks funny and not productive as they expect.  This was completely necessary to be said ... using this sort of illustration with mafia as subject :))))) ........... but you "provoked" me a little :)))) and i will add. We all working for devil the boss, because he is ruler, god of this world, global company/corporation. Just another, different way of rationalization.   :))))))
    • I agree that God is organized, which is clear in creation.  He has also organized his anointed Body of “144,000” perfectly, by distributing gifts in various measure. All are to benefit from each other.  (1 Cor chapter 12)  And he himself gave some as apostles and some as prophets and some as evangelists and some as pastors and teachers 12 for the equipping of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all reach the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to a measure of the maturity of the fullness of Christ.  Eph 4:11-13 In Matt 13:36-43 it says, “The Son of Man will send out his angels and they will gather out of his kingdom all the causes of sin and those who do lawless deeds” Matt 13:41 Jesus stated that his kingdom is “no part of this world”. John 18:36  His kingdom is comprised of the anointed – those part of his Body.  He is the “Lord of lords and King of kings”.  Rev 17:14 (Matt 20:21)    And they were singing a new song, saying, “You are worthy to take the scroll     and to open its seals, because you were slaughtered,     and bought people for God by your blood     from every tribe and language and people and nation, 10 and made them a kingdom and priests to our God,     and they will reign on the earth.” Rev 5:9,10 (1 Pet 2:5,9) Matt 13:37,38 – “So he answered and said, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, 38 and the field is the world. And the good seed—these are the sons of the kingdom, but the darnel are the sons of the evil one.” If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Gal 3:29 We know that not all of God’s anointed become faithful members of the Bride.  They can fall from their heavenly position. 2 Pet 3:17; Rev 8:10,11  This harvest firstly concerns those belonging to Christ, who are part of his kingdom and are found either as good seed or weeds.  I hope you can see that Matt 13:36-43 has nothing to do with the all the kingdoms on the earth and the people in them.  (Luke 4:5-7)  In Matt 13:38; It does say, “the field is the world” – but world can mean, “an apt and harmonious arrangement or constitution” which describes the anointed arrangement of "kings" under their Head Jesus Christ.  John 4:23,24 -   Jesus said right before these scriptures:   “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.” John 4:21 Christ’s Body replaced the temple in Jerusalem.  There is no more literal, physical place of worship, since the Temple is now built with “living stones”.  1 Pet 2:5,9   They are given “spirit” and “truth”.  1 John 2:20,27; John 16:13  If they fail in their devotion to God and Christ, they lose what has been given them.  Luke 8:18; 1 Cor 3:18  They will not be sealed into the tribes of “Israel”.    Luke 13:24; Rev 3:11 Again in Rev 18:4, “my people”, refer to God’s holy people – His “special possession”.  They and their companions with them are to leave the “organization” where the “darnel” are teaching His people, lies. Rev 18:4-8 (1 Pet 2:5,9,10)      
    • I don't know if anyone provided an update to this story, but the "brother" finally pled guilty, and was sentenced to five years, for three felony counts of child rape with two different victims. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/man-who-raped-jehovah-s-witness-girls-sentenced-5-years-n1082136 Elihu Rodriguez, 32, of Yakima, Washington, was given five years, the maximum sentence prosecutors had asked for, after Rodriguez pleaded guilty to three felony counts of child rape in the third degree in September. He was also ordered to register as a sex offender. Both of his victims attended the sentencing, which took place Friday at the King County Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent, Washington. I believe this was the case I was told something about in 2018, which is why I mentioned then that I couldn't say much because it was an upcoming court case. If it's the same one, then someone (parent?) convinced her not to report it because it was just a matter that this 25-year-old was in love with her, and so they told her it was actually multiple acts of fornication, not child abuse or child rape. She agreed not to report on the basis that she would be considered guilty of fornication, too. So the family moved to another congregation, and within months, she got to a point where she decided she needed to report it to the elders. (I don't think it was because she learned about another girl being raped/abused by the man, even though this would make sense.) When she did report it to her new congregation's elders in 2013, they actually called the legal department just as they were supposed to, but evidently someone thought it was going to be possible to treat this as "consensual" and the elders tried to get her to say it was consensual. She refused to agree with the elders that it was consensual, and took it to the authorities. When I heard about this case (or perhaps another one just like it) I was only told the general area of the US, and some circumstances, but no names. I was only told that this was disturbing that someone would try to turn a child molestation case of a "16 year old girl" into a consensual case in spite of the young age. (I was not told that she was actually 14/15.) Years earlier, J R Brown, as a spokesmen for the Society, had tried to minimize a lot of these cases by saying that a lot of them are like cases of an 18 year old boy with a 16 year old girl, which sounded a bit like the old "boys will be boys" excuse. 
    • The point was that Jehovah is organized, the evidence is all around us. This leads us to believe that His visible favored people would be organized in doing His will. Moving forward we can consider WHO HE is about to sanction based on Matthew 13:36-43, John 4:23,24,Revelation 18:4 and a few more.......
